the flatline episode reminds me of fear her, 10th doctor series 2 episode 11. i think that danny pink might also be one of the victims, maybes the doctor too on flatline. maybes another dimension on the wall for flatline, doubt it is omega, he would have to have a much bigger role maybes someone similar or from the past.

If this is supposedly filming alongside episodes 11&12 (Block 6) then we may be in for an early/mid August start, with episode 10 (Block 7) to film in July.


I'm assuming Christmas will be filmed outside of these production blocks to give the actors a break...?

maybe its an alternate earth story something from that universe is trying to break into the doctors

Looks to me like somehow that tunnel leads into some kind of, mirror universe

These photos are all over the net. What I love about this article is that not only does it quote from this website (and indeed this particular page) but that it's main quotes are from that well known expert on all Doctor Who matters, ahem "Planet of the Death".


"It's interesting how tight lipped they've been about this episode (lack of cast announcements, nor writer)," commented Planet of the Deaf," and indeed this particular block of filming. Clearly there's something major they want to keep secret..."

" Danny Pink hasn't been seen for months, maybe there's another episode being filmed at the same time involving him and the Doctor?"


I will be sending them a bill :-)

Anyone else thinks that these white wall panels in the tunnel remind of the Portal game series a lot?...

I swear to god; Jenna gets prettier every episode.

A spaceship exploding over New York ? More intrigued then ever

I can exclusively reveal that the graffiti disappeared overnight after Cardiff council sent workmen out to wash it off 

"What a ****ing mess" moaned the cleaning contractor as he scrubbed the walls, "You never got this when Russell was in charge of the show"

I say it seems a little Chris Chibnal.

So the last one looks like glass shattering...something breaking out of the painting, perhaps?

This looks very exciting!!!!!!!!!!!! Reminds me a little of Fear Her. Maybe the world is going to disappear into a drawing again.

Well at least we know Clara is lasting at least 9 episodes! I was afraid she would be gone early in the season.

NOOOOO Chloe Webber is back

This just looks like it could be a really good Fear Her. No offence to the smattering of people who like it.

How can this NOT be written by Neil Cross? This episode seems to have "NEIL CROSS" written all over it.

That's some really disturbing graffiti...

Ok , so obviously this seasons new super bad is the famous and faceless graffiti artist Bansky.

Aww, what a cute cuddly Dog toy :-) Sorry, got distracted there!

Okay, I can honestly say this looks brilliant just from what we've seen. I like this type of story, and if Jenna's the star then I'm even more happy! The very last pic of the shattering glass is very intriguing...

PLOT TWIST!!! Banksy is an extraterrestrial life-form who uses his spray powers (no unintended dodgy joke intended) to trap people in walls! I would so laugh if that was the actual episode.                 Seriously though, my anticipation for this episode is quite possibly even higher than the medieval episode. It looks so interesting.

Seems to me like they're going for a Fear Her vibe, but with people being turned into street art.. (I'm getting this from the fact that Bristol has a lot of graffiti and that Banksy, probably the world's most famous street artist got started in Bristol).. strange that they are not shooting here (I live in Bristol), they've shot here before and it's only a stone's throw (over a long bridge) from Cardiff..


Ivegotkidneys is companionless!
Ivegotkidneys is companionless!

according to wikipedia episode 9 is a 1 episode block so could that be the companion lite episode of the series and this be the doctor lite

Believe me, 90% of articles on those sites are either taken from here or the Spoiler and Speculation Thread on Gallifrey Base, same goes for the comments. XD

@TheBiPunishment  I think whatever it is it has horns if you look at the top it looks like a head with horns and the bottom of the shattered bit looks like a city

It's obviously a sequel to Fear Her with Matthew Graham returning to finally follow up his incredibly popular story. 


The Outer Space K9

An episode like Turn Left with Jenna as the main star. Yes please

floppy_who

@RobJohnPhillips Totally agree. Even asylum of the Daleks had a sequence filmed here. And yes, Cardiff to Bristol is a very reasonable 40 mile stone's throw..

Would be so surreal to see the Doctor in the Bearpit.

@Ivegotkidneys Rachel Talalay confirmed that none of the episodes are Doctor Lite or Companion Lite, but since this is Douglas Mackinnon directing, it could be the case/ I hope so, I do want a little change.

@DWTV We already had a follow up to Fear Her.......I believe it was called "Night Terrors"

@mrpaddy1984 Wouldn't it just! I can just picture the TARDIS parked on Turbo Island in Stokes Croft opposite Banksy's "Mild Mild West" painting...

Yes it is, and there's strong evidence to suggest this is the Doctor-Lite.

It's DWTV, of course it's sarcasm ;)

Which is odd because in theory, with ep 13 gone there is no need for a Doctor lite. 


TardisBoy

The other filming block is Talalay's isn't it? The finale?


TardisBoy
TardisBoy

They've still got the Christmas special to film though haven't they? That's rumoured to be in a production block with Ep 10 isn't it?


The Watchful Guardian

It could just be that Clara is in the location scenes while the Doctor is in the studio scenes.

The Watchful Guardian

No. The other block currently filming is the Paul Wilmshurst's filming block. Talalay's block is still in pre production.

This episode looks set to be my favourite episode of series 8. I love disturbing and creepy looking episodes

They've already filmed Wilmshurst's episodes! They were the ones that were on location in Lanzarote! Rachel has posted a pic on twitter with her director's slate. Which is filming now.


The Watchful Guardian

Wilmshurst said that he had two weeks left last week. Rachel's slate is preliminary

So the BBC really should start revealing news about the finale soon. Maybe some new casting.

TardisBoy

@The Outer Space K9 The finale (Eps 11 and 12) is being filmed right now alongside the filming for Episode 9. Ep 10 and the Xmas Special are rumoured to be in the final filming block.


TardisBoy

This is all so confusing. I've had people tweeting one thing and other people tweeting another! *shakes fist at twitter*


The Watchful Guardian
The Watchful Guardian

I know. As I understand it

Block 4

One episode of Wilmshurst has been shot.

The other is part shot and finishing next week

Block 5

Single episode with MacKinnonn directing. Just started filming

Block 6

Principal photography yet to start. But bits of filming has started with main cast probably joining in next week once Block 4 is done. Possible overlap with Block 5.

Or maybe they can film three block because they don't need Capaldi for Block 6 as McGann is the Doctor for that episode.....or not.

The Outer Space K9

What I don't get is why are they teasing us. Just reveal the writers and the filming blocks, there's no harm in that.

Or Alec Hardy (David Tennant) in Broadchurch: "BLOODY TWITTAH!" XD

Ahhh that makes sense...and YES PLEASE! to the final sentence :P

@The Outer Space K9 Why would they? The BBC love rumours, speculation and the ability to make lots of little announcements instead of one big one. It makes for some great press and free publicity.

The Outer Space K9

Great publicity and lots of Whovian brains on fire trying to figure everything out. That's fine with me, it's just that the wait really gets to me sometimes...
